WG, in the hope that you read some posts, could you fix it for me to be in the other team please ?

 

Or, distribute the skill, be it good or crap, EVENLY, not all the crapon one side and all the good on the other.

 

It might make for better games and not the boring team wipes (whether you win or lose)

 

PS i have tried to' get gud' but cant :-)

You could always ask for advice on how to improve. Post replays and whatnot.

 

If you'd like to get on the good team, be a part of it. Jokes aside: You're not even a bad player, though your winrate is lower than what the damage you're doing suggests. Some light analysis might indicate that you're camping too much.

Your heavy tanks seem to deal quite a lot of damage - but have average-ish winrates. They also have few tanks spotted on average, which typically suggests you're not on the frontlines when you should. Winrate is mostly governed by damage done at the right time (=early), with healthy exceptions for tanks relying more on assist damage.

 

Matchmaking might make it more likely to have average WR/high damage/low spotted (especially in e.g. T8s) when you're bottom-tier, and of course means that even a really good player might have less of an impact on a game than when in a top-/mid-tier tank.

 

It's all part of 'git gud', and getting the most out of terrible teams is a part of it. If you can tell (by your team's positioning, for the most part) that your team is gonna fail, there's hardly any shame in trying to get as much damage as possible. Digging in can even turn around games like that - north side on Fisherman's Bay is for instance extremely hard to assault with one spotter east of the base and TDs sitting on the hill.

None of this helps with the 'rigged mm' this guy is clearly getting.  How can he get good when it's always the enemy team that has the best players?  It CANNOT be this guy's fault.  Other players can get purple stats because WG has chosen them to NOT get bad MM (because reasons).

 

He is clearly a 65% player but WG is purposefully holding him back (because reasons), preventing him from reaching his true potential!

OK...I'll have them put you on the losing side that you normally win.......and the winning side that you normally lose.....that should put you back below 50%.

Cheers!:great:

Hang on, WG is ALREADY giving YOU the best team mates, why else would you have such good stats?  Do you honestly think YOUR skill has anything to do with how good your stats are?

Wow, a Fort Knox subscription?!  That IS dedication to the cause, particularly in these austere times, even my butler had to sell one of his yachts!

Murphy's Law says: Other queue always moves faster.

 

And I might add the all time favorite: No matter which way you turn, your a$$ is always behind you.

 

No, you don’t want to be on the other team. :P

Its not "rigged" or at least I don't think it is


I get the same thing in both directions about an even amount of the time, but like the OP would prefer it to never happen

Worst match up I have noticed was the oppfor with 12 greens and 2 purples vs my team with 2 greens, no amount of "getting gud" would alter the outcome of that game, even putting 1 purple on our team wouldn't have changed the outcome other than slightly postponing the oppfors win from less than 5 minutes to "maybe" 5 minutes


There "might" be the 1 in a thousand fluke game where the outcome wasn't what you would expect but I seriously even doubt that in 1 or 10 thousand games that would be the case with that matchup. But realistically the weaker team with that type of matchmaking might as well just suicide early on rather than wasting time on it and hope the next game is more evenly balanced and its barely any more enjoyable to play a game where youre on the better team in that sort of balance either tbh

...or add a premium consumeable (100Gold per usage) that allows a player once a game to switch teams.

For fun and profit...or $hits and giggles.
